♥️♥️ Lanae ♥️♥️  (ramboramblernae) | 5 comments I think it's safe to say that Coffee and baked goods are a given with most of us aspiring and inspiring writers. lol.

And this is might be a shameless plug but I actually just wrote a blog about my guilty pleasure, a random writing topic that came about after doing the 30 day photo challenge on Instagram. I'm mostly excited because I officially started my own blog with wordpress.org in November 2015 but I've been incredibly slow (read: terrified) to actually write a BLOG. My site has consisted of Fan-Fiction and Book Reviews that I cross-post here on Goodreads. And only in the last few months have I begun to post chapters of my two Original works.

So here it is: Netflix: It's EVIL (if you're an aspiring author)

And with that in mind, does anyone else have any bad habits when it comes to sticking to your writing schedule? I can't be the only procrastinator on here!!!

LOL! Taking time to "watch" something kinda puts us in the same boat. Only with you, it's sports. I've recently discovered that painting can be pretty relaxing, too.

R.F.G. Cameron | 601 comments Actually not sports, but the flying critters that hunt around the house. Turkey buzzards get boring waiting for me to croak, but hawks tend to be fun.

R.F.G. Cameron | 601 comments It's all good, as I tend to spend more time around wild creatures than bipedal creatures most of the time.

We don't do broadcast / cable TV, especially since javelin catching was never a popular sport. Some people just didn't quite catch on to the fact that one is required to catch the javelin with one hand rather than through the body. **A bit of archaic sport humor there. **

I never used to watch TV. I have this issue with commercials lol. but these last fews years....WHY was Netflix created? Ugh. And I'm the opposite. I can't remember the last movie I saw. I'm all about tv series lol. But I'm trying to shut it down. Go back to reading only

I've never really tried comics before. Never seemed like enough words for me lol.
